Hope is a London-based singer-actor of Romani heritage who is as comfortable in a Shakespearian stanza as she is in the high ledger lines of a Mozart aria. Throughout her work, she is acclaimed as a communicative, sensitive and innovative artist; working across opera, musical theatre, screen and stage, alongside the additional musical genres of folk, jazz, pop, rock and country. She is represented by Fiona Cross Management.

Hope has performed in venues including The Royal Albert Hall, The British Museum, The Barbican, St. Paul’s Church in Covent Garden and The Glasshouse International Centre for Music. She represented the UK in the United Nations’ 75th Anniversary Concert, held virtually on UN Day in 2020, and was delighted to join the cast of the Royal Opera House’s production of Don Giovanni in 2021. Throughout 2022 and 2023, she performed as a Resident Guest Entertainer for both Princess Cruises and Seabourn Cruises. Whilst on board the Discovery Princess, Hope was invited to perform for and collaborate with Grammy, Golden Globe and Oscar-winning composer, Allan Rich.

In 2024-2025, Hope will join the International Tour of Andrew Lloyd Webber's The Phantom Of The Opera as a member of the Ensemble and covering the role of Carlotta Guidicelli.

 

She holds a Master of Arts with Distinction from the Royal Academy of Music, where she was the recipient of the Parepa-Rose Prize and was supported by the Tom Acton Memorial Trust and the Royal Academy of Music. She performed the role of Fiordiligi in Mozart’s Cosi fan tutte as part of the Royal Academy’s Opera Scenes and The Jay in Royal Academy Opera’s Production of Janáček’s The Cunning Little Vixen before workshopping Queen of The Night for Die Zauberflöte and graduating in 2019.

 

​Alongside her singing and acting work, Hope is a writer and storyteller; creating poetry, libretto, scripts and songs that often combine across mediums to form a narrative. She is currently developing new Music Theatre works and one-woman headliner shows. She enjoyed a fleeting career as a stand-up comic in South-West London throughout 2018 and 2019, which garnered her the title of “somewhat witty” from her audiences. Her self-devised 20th Century American Existentialism programme, combining American Art Song and modernist poetry, was awarded Second Prize at the final of the 2017 Courtney Kenny Award, given by the Association of English Singers and Speakers.

 

As a concert soloist, Hope has sung Vivaldi's Gloria and Mozart's and Fauré's Requiems with the Corsley Festival Orchestra. She premiered Paul Carr's Gloria as the soprano soloist and sang the soprano solo in Handel's Messiah, both for the English Arts Chorale. In 2019, her childhood dreams of mermaidism finally came to pass when she performed Alla Sirenko’s song cycle The Love of The Mermaid, based on Hans Christian Andersen’s original tale.

 

In 2018, she obtained a First-Class Honours Bachelor's Degree from Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance, where she participated in Masterclasses with Rita Susovsky and Gidon Saks and performed in both a Concert and Masterclass with David Gowland and the Royal Opera House Jette Parker Young Artists. She was the winner of the 2018 Lillian Ash French Song Competition, awarded by Roger Vignoles, and was announced as a finalist in the 2018 Elizabeth Schumann Lieder Competition, both with collaborative pianist Claire Habbershaw. Hope and Claire were delighted to partake in celebrations for the launch of Trinity Laban's Venus Blazing, a celebration of female composers, by recording Anne Boleyn from Libby Larsen's song cycle: Try Me, Good King for the Venus Blazing website and media following. She also performed the role of Female Chorus in Benjamin Britten’s The Rape of Lucretia for Trinity Laban Opera.

 

Other credits include: Cover Despina/Chorus in Cosi fan tutte for Opéra de Baugé, where she was a recipient of the Gil Rodriguez Scholarship for outstanding contribution to the 2015 Operatic Season, Cover Galatea/Chorus in Acis and Galatea for Hurn Court Opera, Laurie in The Tender Land and Wife of Chao/Soprano Actor in A Night At The Chinese Opera, both as part of Trinity Laban’s Opera Scenes
